    We went for the dorm option. They are set out in pods instead of bunk beds. Each pod has space for your belongings with it's own lamp, plug sockets and a curtain for privacy. And underneath theres secure lockers for your valuables. The restaurant serves great food. Breakfast is additional but and worth it.The roof has a great pool and bar area to socialise. It was 10mins walk from Parque de Los Novios with restaurants and bars and 15mins walk to the market bus top for Tayrona park

    Easily one of the nicest hostels I’ve ever stayed in. Felt more like a hotel at times. I saw one review that said the pods can get warm because of lack of air flow but I had no problem with that and slept great every night. The facilities are great, drinks are fantastic, and food is delicious. The staff is incredibly friendly and helpful. Shoutout to Carlos for being a huge help planning activities around Santa Marta. Stay at this hostel and take Carlos’ salsa class you won’t regret it.

    Extremely clean. Electronic watches that unlock the doors and lockers. 5k for a towel, hotel quality. Beds are in a grid and have privacy curtains, lights, and outlets plus a small area like a boxing ring apron where you can put things. Only 6 people to a bathroom which is nice. AC is great, wifi is great (first floor and rooftop). Organized events for people to do and get moving! Both nights I stayed there were dance classes available to participate in. Longer review w/pics on TripAdvisor.

    The hostel was really pretty and “pinterest”!!! Everything was super clean! Like, really clean!! The dorm were perfect and they also offer really good breakfast from 10 000 COP! It’s not a “real backpacker hostel” since there is no place to hang your wet clothes or a kitchen to cook but still is amazing if you need a break from sketchy hostels! Would definitely recommend.

    Staff was extremely helpful when we arrived. Facilities were nice- but the beds sucked. Straight up I had to check underneath my sheets to make sure it wasn’t just bricks. Pillow felt like three sheets of paper stapled together (landscape style). Couldn’t sleep. Also the little cells actually make you feel like the mitochondria (powerhouse of the cell) but they don’t promote any sort of ventilation so the cells get very hot. But overall it was okay hence the 8.3 review. 15 min walk to any bars.

    The check-in was slow because there was a line and the staff was busy doing other things. Guys if you have a line focus on your guest instead of doing other administrative things at the same time. Jennifer, in particular, had a bad attitude. Maybe she was tired but I felt really unwelcome by her. The other guy (short hair), which I don't remember the name, was ok. He walked us to the room and gave us really good information. I would not recommend this place because of the check-in experience.
